Tilda Plum Garden Designer Showcase – Pt 2!

My first project from the Plum Garden range is

Picnic under the Stars.

These first few photos were taken before it was quilted.

 

 

 

Picnic under the Stars now quilted and bound, ready to be photographed

Tilda Plum Garden Designer Showcase!

 

 

Recently I was invited to participate in the Tilda Plum Garden Showcase

along with lots of talented designers sponsored by 2 Green Zebras.

 

This very pretty range was released on the July 1st and is now

readily available from many stores.

 

 

 

Its so hard to choose which one I liked the most as they are all so gorgeous

and as I used each one it became the new favourite.

 

 

 

The coordinates Berry Jam and the Tea Towel Basics are perfect

match not only for your Plum Garden project but for your other Tilda projects.

Keep watching for my project reveals in the coming days here and at @franceslillydesigns.

Road Trip to K & K Warehouse Sale!

Recently we took a road trip to attend Kennard & Kennard

Warehouse sale. I also met one of the very talented designers

of their Australiana fabrics Amanda Brandl it was wonderful to talk about her

current ranges and I look forward to seeing the new ones.

 

 

For some time I have  been working on some new quilt designs

for Kennard & Kennard

using their latest Australiana fabric ranges.

These fabrics are gorgeous and I can’t wait

to start making them up. I’ve also seen some of the new ranges coming

and have many new designs on the drawing board.

Contact Kennard & Kennard if you wish to purchase

any of the patterns below.

You can also view them on my pattern page.

Time for sewing!

Playing with a box of leftovers from previous quilts.

 

 

From leftovers to this stack of four patch blocks.

Still loving these colours.

 

 

 

Some early morning pics of these gorgeous beauties in my garden before the heat gets to them.

So excited to receive first prize for my quilt ‘Bloom’

Quilts on a Road Trip continued!

Another new quilt that came on our road trip,

was a ufo that was started some time ago and never completed

for some now forgotten unknown reason.

Now its finished, quilted and bound and is now one of my many favourites.

We came across these wonderful old disused bridges,

lovely setting by the very low river, great for a quilt photos.

 

 

On further inspection, maybe not!

Now totally fenced off, to dangerous for anybody.

 

 

Choose the veranda of this very fitting old building instead.

Pattern now added to the pattern page.

Class Catch- up!

The gorgeous ladies in my Baltimore Album class at

The Sewing Bee Cafe have been busy

completing their blocks before the next class.

Looking forward to seeing all of their blocks come

together in the next couple of months.

 

 

As have the ladies in my Primrose Manor class,

also at The Sewing Bee Cafe. I love that there is such

diversity of fabrics in both classes.

Playing Catch-up!

Lately I’ve been a slack posting on my blog.

Thinking that I had posted on Instagram as well as my blog,

but actually only posting on Instagram.

Over the next few days (or weeks) I will

endeavour to catch up with all that’s been happening.

 

 

I’m thrilled and delighted to receive first prize for my Primrose Manor,

at Victorian Quilters Showcase at the Melbourne Quilt and Craft Fair.

 

 

Some closeups of the 3d flowers, gorgeous fabrics and quilting.

 

 

Congratulations to all who entered theirs quilts into Showcase.

You are all winners!
